Multnomah Falls

Written by CooKies™. Posted in Photography

20th February, Sunday. Today I followed my colleague went to the tallest waterfall in Oregon: Multnomah Falls.

According to wiki, Multnomah Falls is the third tallest waterfall in US. The total height of this waterfall is about 620 feet. It is located near the Columbia River Gorge. You can get a scenic view of the river from the top of the waterfall. To get to the top of the waterfall, you’ll need to climb up the hills like 1mile before you can reach there. Well, I’ve been quite a while didn’t exercise that much. Felt the toughness walking up the hills in fact. >.< Anyway, that was really a nice place to experience the falls, the splashes of water, the scenery, and the trails of course. 🙂

Portland Downtown Trip

30th January, 2011. Sunday. Finally I made up my mind to explore the Portland downtown. 😉 Although now is winter time, but the temperature today is still acceptable for me to go explore around. Plus, is time for me to try out my Nexus S’s Navigation in the town. 😛 Without considering much, grabbed my camera, I drove myself to the nearest transit station, took the Trimet directly to the Portland Downtown area.

一月三十日,星期日。今天的天氣還算不錯,溫度也不會太冷。於是我就下定決心,獨自闖入市區去走走,也順便試用一下我新買的衛星導航手機。:P 我沒想太多,拿了相機就直接到附近的火車站,乘搭火車到市區去。

Do you know Jack?

22nd January, Saturday. The sun was shining brightly through the windows. What a good day. I decided to take this opportunity go out to explore around.

First, I need to find something ‘fast and easy’ to feed my stomach. I’d tried the KFC, A&W and Mcd, it’s time to try something else. I end up meeting with “Jack”. Well, he’s a shy guy I guess. I didn’t even got chance to see how he looks like! Really don’t know how he can be the founder of this fast food restaurant! 😛

When the Peacock lights up…

在晚餐過後,我們就出發前往著名的‘孔雀巷’去欣賞燈飾。那裡出名就是因為每逢聖誕節期間,在那裡的每一家每一戶都會細心地為他們的家園裝上許多的燈飾,非常地有創意,簡直讓人嘆為觀止。不過,在那天晚上要拍照,真的並非是件容易的事。因為真的非常的冷!風不停地在吹,搞得我們一路走就一路抖。冷得抖了,還要在暗的情況下抓穩相機,才能拍到美的照片哦,真的不容易。不過能夠欣賞到這些美麗而又充滿聖誕氣氛的燈飾還真的蠻過癮。
